fifty & two thirds: no.1 (waves before a storm)

    Prev Next

    these three were taken in sequence while standing neck-deep & fully-clothed in the ocean, with a ziplock bag and some rubberbands over the camera. the waves were making such lovely shapes as the hands of the storm stretched overhead.

    really digging how the 50mm 1.2 plays with light when you throw the focus.

      Great image. I like the contrast between the ocean and the sky. They ocean looks kinda scary and brooding while the sky has a bit of a look of hope.

      Wow, when I first saw them I thought they were mountains! But the title made it more clear. Amazing.
